|DyE Inside Out Limited Vinyl LP
The 3rd album is often an important step, where one can keep on digging the same hole or change direction. On “Inside Out”, DyE didn’t really make that cornelian choice and found a third way, keeping on exploring his futuristic, teen nostalgic and colorful idea of electronic Pop while paying a tribute to 80s classics like Martin Dupont, Liaisons Dangereuses or OMD.
Although it started as a cover album, DyE quickly moved away from that concept and reached out to collaborators, personal friends as well as inspirational characters who helped him find new directions.
A few milestones compilation series paved the way : Toxic (by French underground hero Uncle O), Dirty Sound System, Italians Do It Better. Inspired by the cutting edge diversity of those records, DyE’s “Inside Out” songs range from the French House sounds of “Turquoise Days” with Benjamin Diamond (of Stardust fame) to the epic New Wave of “Emo Machine” featuring Mark Kerr (Maestro) and Guillaume Teyssier; from the sweet and sour French Pop of “Amours Satellites” featuring Alice Lewis to the ethereal poetry of French writer Angie David on “Caprice Classic” or the urgent Synth Pop of DyE’s cover of Martin Dupont’s “Inside Out”.
DyE didn’t forget his outstanding musician skills either, especially on those instrumental bits : channeling his inner Funk on the bass on the PPUesque “KFun” and “MO5”, or his love of chemically enhanced Electro and House with Sathorn and Arkanoid. Elsewhere, voices are echoes of a contemporary Parisian bubbly life.
The album was mixed by Tigersushi boss Joakim in his New York Crowdspacer Studio and Tu Sais Qui designed the artwork.
